TEAM NEWS!! Arsenal Suffer Fresh Double Injury Blow Ahead Of Crystal Palace
Arsenal have suffered a fresh double injury blow ahead of their Premier League tie with Crystal Palace on Sunday.
Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta, confirmed the two injury blows for Arsenal following their Europa League defeat against Sporting Lisbon on Thursday.
Arteta revealed that things did not look good for both Takehiro Tomiyasu and William Saliba after they were subbed off during Arsenal’s Europa League round of 16 second-leg defeat to Sporting Lisbon at the Emirates Stadium.
Tomiyasu and Saliba were taken off injured as Arsenal lost 5-3 in a penalty shootout against Sporting after a 1-1 draw.
Speaking after the game, Arteta said at his post-match press conference,
“Obviously, we lost Tomi very early in the game and we lost Saliba.
“Tomiyasu looks pretty serious, for his reaction straight away and what he said to me. Obviously, it is very early and difficult to know.
“William, I don’t know. He had some discomfort and could not carry on, so we had to take him off.”
